C. -- The Mosl Rev. Vincent S. Waters. D. D., Bishop of Raleigh, has organized in the Diocese of Raleigh lhe Bishop's Committee for Christian Home and Family, which will be composed of a gronp of Catholic mothers, appointed by His Ex- cellency, to act as his messengers in bringing to mothers the advice of the Church in regard to the Catholic education of their chil- dren during the formalive years before their children enter school. The members of the committee uill already have completed the rearing of their own families and will bring to this work of Catholic Action their own years of expe- rience. Pope Pins XI declared in his Encyclical on Christian Education that the aim of Christim educa- tion is to "form a true and perfect Christian who must live a super- natural life and display it in his actions." The Catholic mother wants her children to leave her when they grow up, said Bishop Waters. "with not only a complete knowledge of the Faith. but with a character strong enough to live a Catholie life in the "face of a world which thinks only of pres- ent pleasure. Character is devel- oped in the Catholic home by the Catholic mother and father fol- lowing the , principles of the Church." "Religious education should be- gin as soon as the child is born," Bishop Waters continued. "A great psychologist was approached hy the mother of a child of five who wished TO get some advice in forming her child's character. He asked her how old the child was, and when she told him, replied, 'You'should have come to me five year ago.' It is too late now.' In the first six years of life the background of character is indeU- bly 'formed. it i because of this fact that we are so anxious to have available for Catholic mother all ,)f tile principles of eha,'aeler ;'ornling." Among its many doctrines anti coun'cls, tile Church has some which apply to motbers and fa-" lhers of children ill their infan:,y. The Bishop's Committee for (Thristian Home and l."unily is to serve as the means Rihop Wate,' has chosen to bring these loach- ings and counsels to the failhful of ; ibis Diocese. As soon as a child is born to Catholic parents ill the Diocese of Raleigl!,' a member ot the Bish- op's Committee will call on the mother and ask if she wishes to obtain this service. If she does wish it. the committee member will list the name of the child and the names of its parents. Later another member of the commit- tee will bring to the child a med- al blessed by the Bishop as a token of'its welcome into his flock. After Ihat, the committee member will call every two or three months to make a friendly visit and to bring a pamphlet prepared by the Com- mittee under the direction of the Bishop. "]'he pamphlets ill be dif- ferent at each time and will be adjusted to the ae of the child at 1he time the committee member calls. Services of a member of the ('ommittee will be available at any other time, and she will be pre- pared to offer a solution to any problem which may be presented to her. If she does not know the solution of the problem, she will find it. The members of the Committee will serve without any hope of material reward, will make no charge whatever, and will refuse any offering. They will also do- nate their time and use their own automobiles for transportation. The only other cost, that of print- ing the pamphlets, will be assum- ed By the'Bishop.
